Gitshams body builders may be able to help. They built the tray that is on my 1972 D1310 International.
It has exactly the same catches. Good luck. Gitshams are in Adelaide.

Well my project has been moving ever so slowly, but over the past few weeks I've been concentrating on the brakes.
(my other half insists on having grandkids nearly every day!!)

MASTER CYLINDER
Was in pretty good condition, cleaned & bore honed





FRONT BRAKES
I was fortunate to grab some brake shoes off my old 1950 spare truck before sending it to the scrapper. They are like new & the thicknesses measure up spot on.

General clean up, both wheel cylinders were seized up, honed & new cup seals inserted. Replacement shoes fitted, Bearings checked & re-packed.
Shoes & bearings adjusted as per specs.
New front hydraulic hoses connected to the newly fitted brake lines.

LH Front Wheel Cylinder


LH Front Brake before


Brakes washed down with soapy water to avoid any asbestos dust flying around

Looks like the seal might have been weeping a little on this RHR side. Will need to consider replacing this I guess?
As I start to work on the wheel cylinder & bisector assembly, can anyone advise on the best LOCALLY (Aust) obtainable grease to use on the bisector components. There are a number of brake component greases on the market, but not specifically specified for this application.
It has been suggested on other forums to use TRW Brake Grease, but this has to come from overseas. ($$$)
I'm just chipping away in between minding little ones. ;)

More updates to follow on the bisector gizzmo. :lol:

cheers

Oh, forgot to show you guys the hub puller I made up at work before I retired!!!
It's a bit cumbersome & overkill, but it works a treat.

On the upside of the bonding letting go, at least it could be riveted back in place as all the holes are there.

Yeah, cobbadog, planned to do that later & keep it for a spare.

Spoke to Power Brakes here in Adelaide & they suggested Bendix Brake Assembly Grease for the Bisector Assys.

Cheers

You won't get any wrong information from Power Brakes, ive been using them for decades and they have never failed me, they've just rebuilt the booster and master for my F350 now Ive just got to get healthy enough to fit them.
